Ian Thompson5 Stars Out Of 5November 21, 2001Ian ThompsonWho were the people who tried Jesus and what were they like? That's the question that this book answers. You'll find out that Annas personal fortune from skimming the income from sacrificial animals was over 2.5 billion pieces of silver, his son-in-law, Joseph Caiaphas, broke 12 laws in bringing Jesus before him. Herod Antipas, second son of Herod the Great was a Rome educated playboy in charge of a small section of a third class imperial province - a man whose rash promise led to the beheading of John the Baptist. And Pontius Pilate? Pilate was an anti-Semitic politician more intent on cash-flow for building projects than justice. These were the people assembled to give Jesus a fair trial!Here are some quotes from the back of the book.Rarely have we been provided such an open look into the character issues related to the judges and their decision-making processes that led to the crucifixion of Jesus.David S. Dockery, President, Union University, TennesseeGilmores work is imaginative, informed, wise, and searching. I know of no better biographical approach to the trials of Jesus.Bob Yarbrough, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, IllinoisDr. Gilmore is not content simply to detail the legal maneuverings. He seeks to pierce through the layers of litigious wrappings to find the core motivations of those who tried Christ. It warms this lawyers heart that with Gilmores careful exposition, Christs trials, bad ones at that, prove a rich source of exhortation.Meirwyn I. Walters, Assistant Professor of Law, Gordon College, MassachusettsOne of the best, most interesting, books I've read this year
